We had the pleasure of planning a baby shower last month – creating a vintage, shabby chic theme with birds, copper, and local wood. Check out some of these amazing photos for more details!
We had so much fun starting the planning process with Heather Kindy, a multi-talented graphic artist and photographer. She designed fabulous vintage bird-themed invitations to celebrate this little baby boy’s arrival. Check out the final product below. (Psst…make sure you read through to the bottom and you’ll see her name again!)
Now to have fun with the décor – Little Maverick’s name was attached to our burlap backdrop using a fabric-covered wooden “M” with the rest of his name, spelled out on a circle shaped chalkboard garland found at Robin Blu, one of our favorite stores in Hazelwood, NC. Check out this great shop for unique and hard-to-find treasures!
The burlap fabric backdrop also included a copper framed sweet baby blessing. To round out the food table décor, we collected a handful of bare branches (easy find since it’s the middle of winter) to create a tree limb centerpiece complete with a birds’ nest and little ceramic blue bird! And proving our love for stamps once again, we made hand cut wooden tree circle ornaments finished with chocolate colored bird stamps, tied with twine to the tree!
What’s a good baby shower without delicious eats? Our menu included Herbed Scones, Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Alfredo, Bread Pudding Bites, Green Salad with a freshly picked lemon and a Thyme Vinaigrette, and Smoked Gouda and Cheddar cheeses. These treats were displayed using mini native-wood cardholders using hand-stamped name cards.
Complementing the main treats, we had delicious Coffee Punch (yes – really!) and a Festive Fruit Punch. Desserts were created by one of our favorite bakers, Heather Kindy of Main Street Bakery and Café. Check out these adorable birds’ nest cupcakes displayed in this fun vintage birdcage!
It was a great afternoon celebrating this precious baby’s upcoming arrival with a fabulous group of ladies in our little mountain town.
